Hammershus is an impressive medieval castle that you must see if you go to Bornholm. Unfortunately the castle is in ruins but it is situated next to a cliff so the view is amazing.

We visited in the fall and it was perfect weather for a long walk around the castle, seaside, cliffs, and forests. They were working on a new visitor center. So, we will return in 2019 to see that and spend a week or two.

The day was sunny but windy. The site has a new visitor center that is very nice. Read the information inside before you visit the site.

Hammershus pops up as soon as you start looking up what to do on Bornholm, while preparing your trip. You might think you've seen it before you even get there. That impression is wrong and there's a lot more to it that just the ruin,...More

The Hammershus is a nice old castle ruin. It is nice to take a hike through the older gardens of the castle. The even nicer part is to have a pick nick in the old castle with a view towards the sunset over the water....More

Great views of the sea and forests from the top of the ruins. Amazing old structures. Has a Parking lot nearby but you’ll need to pay for parking. Also has a fine visiting center where you can buy ice cream food and other refreshments.
